Additionally, the Eternally Reborn Exhibition will be showcased in Paris at the Place Vendome Flagship boutique until August 31st, 2024, and comes as a celebration of the 140th anniversary of Bvlgari. 

Initiated by the DOMVS inside Rome’s Via dei Condotti store, the exhibit travels worldwide to exclusive boutiques, demonstrating Bulgari’s capacities for reinvention. 

The exhibition presents the brand’s deep passion for Rome and Bvlgari’s commonality with the city through the values of rebirth and evolution.

The display will include valuable jewels from the Bvlgari Heritage Collection with objects loaned by private collectors. Guests will be able to observe Monete jewels with Greek and Roman coins, a sautoir set with citrines and tiger’s eyes, the David di Donatello plaque and a prestigious, never-seen-before necklace in gold and platinum embellished with turquoises and diamonds. 

The Eternally Reborn Exhibition will also display images and videos from Bvlgari’s Historical Archives, Museum collections and notable commissions, which will allow visitors to gain in-depth knowledge of the Maison, showcasing the brand’s long-established devotion to Rome, also known as the Eternal City.
